Aprilia Milay or Mill?

Whats the proper pronuciation for the Aprilia RSV Mille? Is it milay or mill or something else? Just wondering.

PS- Up here in Canada we say ZedX-9, YZedF, and so one. Which, personally, I think sounds way cooler.

Honestly, I've always said "meal" M-I-L-L-E, meal.
What do you think!!

Aprilia's commercials call it ME-lay. That is the promunciation that is used most but we need to hear from an Italian I guess.

melay

But not said with an redneck American accent. The way John would say it is the wrong way to enunciate it. Needs the smooth touch of a bilingual.

Well, then you should trust his judgement about the ME-lay....most hoomoosexchooals that I know have an excellent grasp of the english language..... (pun intended)

I watched a big thing about the RSV Mille and the R on Speedvision and that is how they pronounced it the whole time.
Who? The speedvision crew or the Aprilla builders? I have $20 it was the speedvision crew.

Mille is Italian for thousand, and that is how you pronounce it.

If still not sure how to pronounce it, just call it an RSV...ummm Arrresssveee .

I usually say "me-le" though.

Take care,
Gregory
